Set Bobby Bowden Free!

Here is a comment I posted on Kody's Sports Korner!, and his feeling that people are overreacting to calls for Head Coach Bobby Bowden to end his long coaching career because he deserves to coach for as long as he wants(regardless for what it is doing to the team) for what he has done for the program.

From Star Trek:"The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few or the one!"

Yes Bobby Bowden saved Florida State football, but that was a very long time ago.

You can't move on to the future or live in the present if you keep holding on to the past.

Looking at the Georgia Tech loss the other night and his interview at the end of the game, he looked totally lost.

Yes in Utopia it would be great if you we could decide for ourselves everything we wish to do or don't whenever we want.
However and fortunately we are not always the best analyst for our decisions.
We are programmed to think that getting fired or dismissed from a program or project is a bad thing, when it can be a realization that we can be whatever or where ever we want to be and that there is more to life than any one thing or place.
Florida State will live on, and I fear Mr. Bowden will go the way of Bear Bryant and won't last long after he would retire. Set him free, and enjoy what you have.

Have a great day!

Update 12/1/09: According to sources Bobby Bowden is expected to announce his retirement.

Update 1/5/10:
FSU penalty upheld; Bowden stripped of 14 wins
